    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    I think Bakakis is solid as RB and Toro at CM

    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    donis and lazaros on the wings and their form is a god send. + fetfa as super sub if he gets his s%$#! together. pelkas is also okay a rw. our most questionable position is one of the DM slots strangely. which greece historically was pretty decent at before. katsouaranis/basinas

    the only player that I think will ever be good enough for NT right now is kourbelis imo and even he is nowhere near or will reach the level of top level katsouranis or basinas

    panathinaikos going down I think is a big reason why NT is struggling as well. When we won the euro pao was a high quality side. Basinas, Karagounis, Seitaridis, nikopolidis, salpi, and AEK was stacked too (AEK is still good tho) there was that nice era in 2010 as well with karagounis/ninis/katsouranis

    so unfortunate though that we had to get the better of 2 teams that are now in the final 4 of the world cup tho eh lads?

    Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Laz Toro/Siovas Zeca Staf Sokratis Manolas Bakakis Karnezis I think this would be solid Mantalos cam if his form is better than Fortounis's Karelis Fetfa if his form suprasses Laz's Bakakis and Laz same side cuz they have good chem.
  8. forgive me if this a repost but I could not find his thread so I figured it might have got deleted! he's one of the NT's best players gotta be on the board! anyways wanted to note that he got an assist to De Rossi via a thundrous header saved by Buffon and rebound caught by De Rossi in a 3-1 Roma win against Juventus.

    yeah we do well vs african and can be competitive with bigger european teams. International games are so few and far between to be super confident about these patterns though. Struggling against asian teams? If I recall correctly we only lost to South Korea 2-0 and drew Japan 0-0 playing on a red card past 10 years. Africa we beat Egypt, Ivory Coast, Nigeria. South America we lost to Argentina, Colombia but beat Bolivia.

    I thought the same thing. World Cup expansion will suit European teams more than others perhaps. Greece, Netherlands, Turkey, italy. 4 teams right there that could compete for a round of 16 spot. Meanwhile teams like Australia, Panama, Costa Rica and Iran are in the world cup regularly because easier confederation.

    also shows how unlucky we were facing the opposition we faced. belgium and croatia look like the strongest teams at WC Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Lazaros Kourbelis Zeca Staf Sokratis Manolas Bakakis Karnezis bench/reserves kpaps karelis fetfa mantalos pelkas torosidis samaris retsos tzavellas pasxalakis tachtsi my pick for 23 man squad if we theoretically qualified for world cup.

    NT Friendly Games

    4-3-3 would be sick and i'm glad people are still okay with Samaris. he had a lull but he definitely is one of our best dm's hate it or love it. hmm mitro donis fortounis laz tachtis samaris zeca staf sok man bakakis karnezis might be decent and then we also got pelkas / fetfa / mantalos as impact subs. also got kpaps/retsos to park the bus if needed siovas might need to take a look as elefantos said he's a very intelligent player with superior positioning. playing great in la liga and he can also play cdm unlike kpaps.

    NT Friendly Games

    i watched the friendlies. you can't always take friendlies super seriously it's a time to experiment. tachtsi played very well in big games for olympiakos this year when other players were slacking. he has a place in the team. especially for weaker opponents where his passing can slice through stubborn defenses. his head vs. AEK & his assist to mitroglou vs. belgium were also this season too. not saying he's an auto-starter but he has a place in the team.

    tachtsi decimated hungary last time he played them and plays decent for olympiakos. i think he'll be alright. tziolis is a problem though for sure

    Sokratis Papastathopoulos ‒ Arsenal

    thing that's pissing me off is Arsenal is trying to get the young tourko cb soyuncu. as soon as toprak came to dortmund sokratis didn't play as well - don't think it's a coicidence. he played great with hummels and bartra they should get manolas as well. obviously sokratis's is a professional and will do his best but I think for chemistry purposes manolas would be way better and i'm not sure that mavropanos is ready to be a regular.

    We should be able to take this but it'll probably still be a heart attack knowing Greece NT lol thing I like about this nations league is that the games will all be relatively competitive as it's pretty merit based. If we deserve to be ranked better then we will can work our way through the ranks unlike the previous system where teams like England/Switzerland face chum opponents because of their pedigree.

    Well according to the wiki page. I got excited prematurely but the wikipedia is cited so it looks good. Sokratis almost certainly. My family is from kalamata and my cousin and Sokratis are friends. He knew he was going Arsenal a month before his father leaked the info.

    Fetfa is back with Olympiakos. If he shows form there high chance he'll be back in the ethiniki. Great news.

    I'd still choose KArnesis over Pasxa but PAsxa is my number 2. Karnezis won his starting 11 for watford and had some shut outs against a top 6 epl side

    Fortounis was still a top scorer/assister in superleague and Mantalos was out for most of the season. The game where pelkas and fortounis both played pelkas had hunger but not the raw talent. Pelkas's first touch was terrible and could have led to a goal. Fortounis nearly scored twice that game by inches however. I think we are dissappointed because Fortounis was supposed to be so much more but he's still one of the best options. People were ripping on me by saying a similar thing with Mitroglou until he got back to his superb form. Mitroglou even in bad form is bed than our other options and same with Fortounis (unless Mantalos is in form)
